A dog was found wandering around Lehigh Acres in Florida last week with its snout taped shut with red electrical tape.

Chance, the Cur, was malnourished, dehydrated and suffocating as a result of one of the most heinous examples of animal cruelty.


Fortunately, as his name implies, Chance was given a new lease on life after being found by Sheriff Carmine Marceno and adopted by the Florida Sheriff's office.

The Lee County Sheriff's Office posted an encouraging update to all who were concerned about the poor animal's condition, who also sustained wounds to his leg and chest.



He is recovering nicely and the positive update read, in part:

"Chance is progressing wonderfully! He has gained weight, his wounds are healing nicely and he is beginning to trust select people."
"Heartfelt thanks to the remarkable staff at LCDAS for the love and care that they are giving to Chance!"

The new addition to the staff at the Sheriff's Office is Deputy Chance.

He is being assigned to the Community Relations Bureau as the "Spokes-Dog" for the department's Pets on Patrol program and even has his own office and email account: eputychance@sheriffleefl.org, according to Cox Media Group National Content Desk.

The original owner of the dog has not been found and the Sheriff's Office is offering a Crime Stoppers reward of up to $3,000.

Additionally, another group announced a $5,000 reward for anyone offering information on the abusive owner, bringing the reward amount to $8,000.



A statement describing Chance's distressed state upon being discovered on February 26 said:

"This dog was on the brink of a terrifying, lonely death."

Although Deputy Chance is in a new home, animal lovers were infuriated over his previous abuse.







The Sheriff's Office Facebook post was flooded with compliments for rescuing Chance.

I agree with Chris Pratt.


May the new member of the paw patrol understand that most humans are capable of showing all the love and affection he deserves and may he continue to experience nothing but endless adoration.

We love you, Chance!

There's something seeing a person litter that drives me up the wall. I remember being a kid and being explicitly told to hold on to my trash and not just throw it in the street. As a kid, I distinctly remember being made fun of for not just throwing the bag of chips I'd just eaten or an empty soda bottle into the gutter.

I can't imagine doing that. Why?! We truly treat this planet as if we have somewhere else to go.

After Redditor pnrddt asked the online community, "What small action immediately makes you dislike a stranger?" people shared their observations.

When you're in the market for a slew of very specific facts that all fall under the same general theme, the internet really delivers.

Forget streamlined public health capabilities and revolutionized human communication, the true beauty of the internet is all the random, barely useful information you can find when a bunch odd people decide to assemble and swap info.

Working in a doctor's office means helping people when they're at their lowest. Sometimes, that leads to wonderful moments when the patient is thankful for all the advice and care you provided. Other times, it means taking something out of someone's bum.

Turns out, that second one happens a lot more than you might think.

I love movies. The cinema has long been a savior of mine and has given me some of my greatest inspirations. But being an avid film watcher has also made me quite the critic. I can always tell when a movie is worth the money to see in theaters or wait until it's on basic cable with commercials. The signs of mediocrity abound, and sometimes they aren't that difficult to spot.

Redditor u/fjv08kl wanted to know what is obvious about mediocre cinema by asking.... What are some subtle 'red flags' that tell you a movie is not worth watching?
